Our 2016 Season:
Now in its twentieth year of celebrating the beauty that lies “between the notes,” MicroFest is the worldʼs leading concert series devoted to the glorious universe of non-standard tunings. Founded by microtonal guitarist and radio personality John Schneider in 1997, MicroFest has grown to a festival of multiple events at Southern California venues ranging from Pacific Palisades to Claremont; Pasadena to Walt Disney Concert Hall in downtown LA. MicroFest has included ground-breaking concerts and premieres of works by Ben Johnston, Lou Harrison, Terry Riley, and Harry Partch with new and historical instruments. MicroFest is co-directed by composer Bill Alves and pianist Aron Kallay.
